“I joined ANSTO’s Graduate Development Program in 2011. It provided me with a wealth of career and personal development opportunities and led to a permanent position in the International Relations team. I’m now ANSTO’s representative at the International Atomic Energy Agency in Vienna.” Jarrod Powell

“ANSTO provides a broad range of career opportunities. I have a business and science degree. I started at ANSTO using the science elements of my degree, as a Year in Industry student in ANSTO’s minerals consulting and research division. I’ve now been accepted into the ANSTO Graduate Development Program and will work in the Business Development team, putting my business studies to good use — developing skills in research commercialisation.” Shakila Fernando
